June 17 - 19, 1863

Loudoun County, Virginia

In 1863, soldiers of both sides remembered the town of Middleburg as a "very pretty village of tasteful white houses, standing on high ground..." Middleburg today is still one of the most picturesque towns in all of the Mid-Atlantic. You can see many old buildings in town that were there during the battle. Historical markers in and around town will help you to understand the interesting Civil War history of this region of Virginia.

Perhaps the only one of its kind, this monument, just across from the National Sporting Library & Museum, honors the more than a million horses and mules who died as a result of the Civil War.

Walk around Mt. Defiance

On June 19, 1863, J. E. B. Stuart placed his battle line on this tall eminence one mile west of Middleburg and met Gregg's Union attack.

Visit the Red Fox Inn

Established in 1728, the Red Fox Inn was a landmark even before the Civil War. J. E. B. Stuart was enjoying his lunch here when the Battle of Middleburg began and he had to flee from Union cavalry.
